Perfect Pairs - One More Profitable Blackjack Game

Perfect Pairs Blackjack is played worldwide and with great pleasure. Not that it differentiates fundamentally from other kinds of blackjack, but one interesting option makes it very extraordinary and exciting to play.

The matter is that it has one more additional bet to be made - a side bet, which implies that the first two cards will form a pair - and if they do, the player wins his bet automatically and continues to play as in general.


Perfect Pairs blackjack is a very popular one. An enormous number of people like it, because in addition to practically traditional rules it gives bonuses, which sometimes happen to be denominated in very serious sums of money.

Because the side "Perfect Pair" bet not only allows to win at once by a perfect pair (what often happens), but also to take a rather serious payout on it which is made as 30:1 in the most rare case.

But we'll speak about the payouts a bit later; now let's observe the rules by which we are going to play.


Before reading the rules it's preferable to read blackjack glossary. Rules themselves are a bit different compared to the standard ones, and here are the differences:

  • The side bet wins in case of a perfect pair not depending on results of a game in whole
  • Dealer stands on all 17s
  • Dealer always peeks for blackjack
  • In case of a tie original bets are returned
  • Perfect Pair bet is paid immediately after dealing the cards if any pairs happen
  • Insurance is allowed
  • It is allowed to re-split up to 2 times
  • Aces used to split get only one card each
  • It is forbidden to re-split Aces
  • Any first two dealt cards can be doubled

These are main rules used in Perfect Pairs, but they may vary slightly from casino to casino depending on the country you are playing at.


Most interesting part of Perfect Pairs are the payouts on the bonus Perfect Pair bet. Here are the rules of payouts that are also variable, but unchangeably profitable:

  • A winning hand is paid 1:1
  • Insurance is paid 2:1
  • Blackjack is 3:2
  • In case of a push original wager is returned
  • A pair of mixed suit is paid from 5:1 to 10:1 depending on casino
  • A pair of same-color suit is paid 10:1 mostly everywhere
  • A pair of same suit is paid 30:1 everywhere


Mostly this game is liked for its payouts on additional bet, and also for its freer than traditional rules restrictions. Read more about profitable blackjack variations at Single Deck Blackjack section.
